The guy the Raptors should hire to oversee every single basketball-related decision is Butch Carter.

Enough time has passed since Carter basically helped nurture Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady, time that should have healed whatever wounds exist following his departure.

Say what you will about the Raptors, but many basketball relationships end bitterly and quite awkwardly.

The decision to keep Bryan Colangelo as president and strip him of all basketball-related duties represents the latest piece of evidence in curiosity and confusion.

In the end, Tim Leiweke’s grand scheme may end up looking good, but there’s so many pieces that need to line up that it makes such an end game difficult to envision at this point.
